The Combat Net Radio (CNR) systems effectively serve as a replacement for the SINCGARS communication system.
The U.S. Army has ordered over 7,000 Combat Network Radio stations based on enhanced multichannel Inter/Intra Team Radio technology, as reported by Sarbaz.kz, citing asdmews.com.
These are fully software-defined solutions, providing signals for both single-channel ground and airborne radio systems. They also assist the military in rapidly adding improved signals necessary in changing conditions. The RT-219 CNR is a unified component of the Army's integrated network, offering communication capabilities in tactical environments.
The CNR is constructed based on combat-proven radio stations from the AN/PRC-148 family, providing the Army with highly crypto-modernized solutions. They are intended to replace outdated RT-1523 radio stations.
